Ferguson businesses pick up, reopen

FERGUSON, Mo. (KSDK) – After another night of clashes between protesters and police, many are back out early Tuesday morning to help clean up Ferguson.

Red's BBQ, which has been closed since being damaged twice in violent outbreaks of Ferguson, has boarded up its windows but plans to open for its customers Tuesday.

The owner of Red's BBQ released the following statement: "We love and support our community and know the community does the same. This is not indicative of what our community stands for and we have our own show of force today, a positive one. We'll open from 1-5 at 9300 W. Florissant Avenue. Come out and support the community and send a positive message out."

They will serve customers in the parking lot.

Ferguson has been a hotbed of protests and turmoil in recent days following the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer.

Ferguson Market and Liquor has reopened its doors. Looters broke in and stole the cash register and damaged the interior after the store was identified as the store where it's alleged that Brown and a friend stole from the day of his fatal shooting.

Throughout the morning, several volunteers spread throughout Ferguson to help with the clean-up effort. Many of the volunteers are coming from the Jennings School District, where the district closed for a second consecutive day due to the unrest.
